Taste of Summery Goodness!

As National Scrapbooking Month draws to a close, I would like to share some of the other projects that I created this month with our gorgeous 'Taste of Summer' Paper Packet.  This was such a bright, fun and fabulous paper packet to play with!  I hope you enjoyed creating with these awesome papers too.

Until next time.

Fabulous Fruity Fun in May!

Close To My Heart has released the most gorgeous papers and stamps to celebrate National Scrapbooking Month this May.  

Aptly named 'Taste of Summer', the papers are bright and bold and feature beautiful fruity prints on one side and fun, primary colours with repeated patterns on the other.  

The stamp set is adorable with amusing "fruity" sayings and cute fruit icons that are perfect for decorating both cards and page layouts.

There are so many gorgeous page layouts and card designs featuring the Taste of Summer products being shared online at the moment.  It really is very exciting to see all of the beautiful, unique and fun ideas available on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.  

If you are on Instagram, you can find lots of creative projects by searching for the hashtag #ctmhtos. In fact, there are currently 123 posts featuring these fun CTMH Taste of Summer products.

If you are on Pinterest, feel free to pop on over to my page and check out my Taste of Summer Board.  I've been busy pinning lots of cute ideas that will be sure to inspire you!

If you are on Facebook, you can check out my Facebook Page ScrapStampShare for inspiration and ideas.  I have been uploading my own projects daily as I have been busy playing and creating in The Crafty Shed.  

I am simply amazed at how far one paper packet can stretch.  At last count, I have created 8 standard cards, 8 gift cards, 1 mini album and 5 double-page layouts from one pack of the Taste of Summer papers.  Yes, I've added a few extra sheets of coordinating Cardstock along the way, but my goodness, that's not too shabby! 

I'm going to be sharing my projects right here over the next few days, so please come back and visit soon.

Here are a couple of cards I created yesterday that are bright, fun and full of fruity goodness!  I have used our Sunset, Honey and Pear Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads to stamp the fruit images and small Epoxy Bubbles for the centre of the fruits.  The "Oh my happy" sentiment on the second card design comes from our very special Happy Everything (Operation Smile) Stamp Set and I have stamped it in Cocoa.

And don't forget, the Taste of Summer Paper Packet and Stamp Set are only available in the month of May 2015 and while stocks last, from your Close To My Heart Consultant.  

Happy crafting,
Denise :)
